Lizz Wright was bound to cross paths with modern roots music specialist Joe Henry. It happened in late 2016, when the singer and the producer got to work on the follow-up to the former's Freedom & Surrender. Wright co-wrote the majority of the songs for that 2015 set. For this one, Henry selected enough songs to fill seven albums, from which Wright narrowed it down to this mix of contemporary and traditional folk, gospel, blues, jazz, and soul. The result is nourishing, a lulling yet ringing affirmation of Wright's deeply rooted connection to the South and its music.
On her sixth album, Grace, Wright translates with phenomenal fluency between inner awareness and outward demonstration, individual seeking and conscious communion, ecstasy and empathy. The achievement's all the more remarkable when you consider that this 10-song set is the fruit of her will to overcome the alienation she felt from her native region in this distressingly divided political climate. Before completing the album with producer Joe Henry, she took a road trip through the rural South, reacquainting herself with the people and places she came from
Produced by acclaimed singer and songwriter Joe Henry, Grace is a stark reflection of Wright's sense of place and belonging that's deeply woven into the cultural fabric of America. Fans of Lizz Wright have come to expect a rich, full throated collection of strong recordings on any album she releases. Here, she delivers in spades. Seemlessly blending roots, blues, gospel and folk traditions in her viscerally honest and seductive style, Grace is a wonderful exploration of music that fits her voice like a velveteen glove.

Lizz Wright (born January 22, 1980) is an American jazz and gospel singer. Wright was born in the small town of Hahira, Georgia, one of three children and the daughter of a minister and the musical director of their church. She started singing gospel music and playing piano in church as a child, and also became interested in jazz and blues. She attended Houston County High School, where she was heavily involved in choral singing, receiving the National Choral Award.
Lizz Wright: Grace by James Nadal, published on August 5, 2017. In reaffirming the adage that you can go home again, Lizz Wright did just that. The songs on Grace reflect a homecoming to the singer's southern heritage-a personal rite of passage to glean inspiration and redefine her musical origins. She revisits her rural Georgia upbringing and Atlanta gospel roots, and finds comfort at her current home in Asheville, North Carolina. Having had an enduring taste of fame and success, she articulates the need for humanity, direly absent in times like these.

Wright and producer Joe Henry give it all a sanctified feel, however, bursting into full gospel choir for a title track, written as a torch song (by Rose Cousins, another Henry client) but here transformed into a plea for humanity. Listen to Barley by Lizz Wright.
